  • "Flat very central to Buxton without being noisy or overlooked."

    Parking at back of property. Facilities good. Only problem found on last day of stay and owners contacted immediately. Was able to cope until we left the property, although I expect that it would have been dealt with immediately if we had asked.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Haven."

    The flat is very well situated to visit the town centre. It was lovely and clean, and very well furnished and equipped. Although close to a main road and near the town centre it was very quiet. The addition of Netflix was a bonus. We would definitely stay there again. I would rate it as our second best accommodation that we have stayed at over the years.

  • "We have recently had a wonderful 4 night break here at the Haven."

    Blown away by the modernness and high standard of the flat, was definitely home from home to the point that we were not ready to leave. Thank you for the comfy bed to. The Haven is well situated within walking distance to the shops and other places of interest to see, highly recommended. If you don’t fancy staying in and cooking then their are several restaurants within walking distance, enjoy.

    Really well located for the City Centre and to get out to the surrounding areas, would happily stay here again. Only small complaint was the bathroom door hinges & handle need a bit of WD40 as they're a bit creaky.

  • "We appreciated the advance correspondence from the agent and owner."

    The apartment was beautiful, comfortable and more than met our needs. The only- relatively minor-issue was that we were scratching our heads in locating the allocated parking space, as we arrived in winter darkness, so as not to inconvenience others. I think we did figure it out. Thank-you for a lovely stay.

  • "Excellent property, clean spacious, beautifully furnished and well equipped."

    Great location not far from town centre. Finding it using the Sykes map and the name the Haven was a bit confusing as the the property is part of Athelstan Terrace and across the road from where it is marked on the map.

  • "My partner and I booked The Haven for a week at the end of August."

    The Haven is in a large building which has been broken up into Apartments. If you come into Buxton from Ashbourne you will come to Park Road on the left opposite a sign indicating the name of the hill - Park Road is circular. We found the parking spaces to be slightly unclear due to the markings rubbing off but didn't have a problem with not being able to park. The apartment is accessed via an entrance which gives access to apartments 1&2. The apartment is compact but spacious and comfortable. The Kitchen was well appointed with a great level of equipment - we had a small issue because the pans weren't working on the hob but we emailed the owner who resolved it very quickly. We did find it a little dark in the dining area- although the windows are huge the trees provide a lot of shade and the lighting didn't help too much. We were slightly confused by the bins - there are two enclosed areas for recycling and general waste bins but the residents seem to rotate the bins for collection out of the enclosed areas so one bin is not with the other ones. We really enjoyed the Haven, it was a great base to explore Buxton

    A short walk into the centre of town. The apartment not only met our expectations in terms of location but was very comfortable, well equipped, warm, quiet. Would definitely return ourselves for another short break in this wonderful part of Derbyshire, but would certainly recommend to friends.

  • "The apartment is in an excellent location within easy walking distance of shops, buses, the rail station and the opera house."

    ]Athough it is within easy walking distance of all the town facilities it is set far enough back from the road to be lovely and quiet .It is very well equipped and very comfortable. We appreciated the tea and coffee and bottles of wine and milk which were awaiting us. The cooking facilities were generally excellent with a superb large fridge/freezer and a really good cooker/ceramic hob. The only niggle here was that a couple of the pans were losing their non-stick PTFE coating, resulting is some black specks in food cooked in them. Overall we had a superb week and hope to book the apartment again. The only thing that could have improved our holiday would have been a couple of portable chairs we could have taken out into the garden to enjoy the beautiful sunny weather we had all week.

  • "A comfortable, up-to-date, one bedroom apartment conveniently situated in a relatively quiet location."

    The Opera House, gardens, the Crescent and main shopping area are a few minutes walk downhill, although this does mean crossing a main road that can be quite busy. The apartment is at the front of the property and well equipped for two people. We had a most pleasant stay and would certainly consider a repeat visit.

The property

This well-presented, ground floor flat rests in the delightful Peak District town of Buxton, excellently positioned adjacent to the 18th century Devonshire Dome and The Pavilion Gardens, just a few minutes’ walk into the town.

With a beautiful setup of bright and airy spaces combined with thoughtful attention to detail, this charming retreat is perfect for couples seeking a quality break in a wonderful region of England.

Park your car in the designated off-road space to the rear of the property and amble down the pathway to the accommodation.

Step through the communal hallway and into a lovely interior made up of a spacious open-plan living room, a nicely appointed shower room with walk-in shower, along with a king-size double room providing ample storage units and a large bay window overlooking the trees.

Fully relax and unwind into your stay with the help of the accommodating lounge area, complete with a plush, neutrally-coloured sofa and two armchairs to spread yourselves out on.

The dining table opens out to fit more chairs under, should you need to and the kitchen is appointed with modern appliances and composite worktops, getting you through your holiday break in style; laminate-wood floors finish the interior in a quality fashion.

Visit some of the town's finest attractions, with The Pavilion Gardens, The Square and The Opera House available, amongst many others, and sample some of the pubs and restaurants along the way.

Described as the gateway to the Peak District National Park, this lovely spa town is a fine spot to base your holiday if you love being outdoors.

Many walking opportunities are close by, with picturesque scenes of rugged cliffs, rambling valleys and babbling rivers to behold.

This heartfelt getaway is to be enjoyed the year-round.

About the location


Tideswell 7 miles; Bakewell 12 miles; Matlock 21 miles.

It was the constant 28 degrees centigrade of the bubbling blue waters of Buxton's eight thermal springs that originally attracted the Romans to the town. However it was during the 18th and 19th centuries, under the patronage of successive Dukes of Devonshire, that the Palladian splendour of the Buxton of today was designed and built - including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, The Great Stable, Hall Bank, The Square, The Pavilion Gardens and The Opera House. Today visitors continue to enjoy these magnificent buildings and gardens, as well as the Opera House's full programme and annual festivals of music and arts. There is good walking close by with rugged peaks to the north and gentle hills and dales to the south and a number of pretty towns and villages are dotted throughout including Bakewell, Ashford-in-the-Water, Castleton and Edale. The stunning properties of Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall are within easy driving distance and must be seen while visiting this area. A great base for exploring the Peak District.
